The November election is almost five weeks away, and we are getting ready. Following the Primary Day results, Rights & Democracy has been at work looking at the candidates who are moving on to the General Election, and evaluating how their platforms align with RAD’s values and with the direction we need to be heading in 2021.

We are thrilled to roll out this next round of endorsements for candidates up and down the ballot. Once again we are pleased to have so many dedicated, passionate, engaged citizens who are stepping up to lead and show true political courage at a time when our state and our nation need it the most.

This pandemic has not ended, and we are facing the prospect of an unstable democracy which will require that those who are in the seats of power are ready to hold fast the values and principles that bring about true collective liberation.

After a thorough application process and input from our leadership and members, RAD is pleased to announce our post primary slate of 17 endorsed candidates. These candidates are in addition to the 49 RAD candidates who won their primary races, for a total of 66 RAD-endorsed candidates in the 2020 elections.

And now, meet the candidates!
